Companies and institutions that have telework capacity should offer full telework option to employees

Institute full telework option- Companies and Institutions that have telework capacity should offer employees the option for full telework. Providing the option for full telework will allow employees to make the best decision for their and family safety. There is no vaccine at this point. As such, requiring telework capable employees to go into the office increases unnecessary risk. Full telework option for companies/institutions... more »

Help businesses compete with Unemployment benefit

It's nearly impossible for businesses to compete with unemployment pay in North Carolina. The maximum state benefit is $350/week, then claimants receive the additional federal benefit of $600/week. For a 40 hour week, that's a pay rate of $23.75 per hour.

As it currently stands, we have a part time employee who's eligible for a weekly benefit of $100, and is receiving weekly payments of $700.

With payouts like this,... more »

Physical therapist

Physical therapy outpatient clinics should be allowed to reopen using all compliance with safety & disinfecting precautions. Patients should continue to wear masks as should the healthcare provider until we are told otherwise by out institution & unfortunately, our Governor. I think too Pres. Trump should intervene & tell Dr. Fauci to shut up now & gradually deal with the upticks & open up businesses. We're hemorrhaging... more »

OFCCP

1. I think it should be optional to continue to telework at least to the end of the year.

2. I telework two days out of the week. For people who regularly telework maybe let us work 3 or 4 days a week and only come into the office 1 or 2 days a week. That should help cut down on the spread of the coronavirus to keep ourselves and others safe.

Take Baby Steps

Businesses should open slowly. This should not be at a cost of lives just because the businesses are not making money. I understand that they have to make money to pay the bills just like everyone else. The cost of opening up whenever they want could be catastrophic. for the sake of our state along with our world we should do this slow, very slow.

Reopen Businesses but keep the vulnerable at home

While we open up businesses again, let's keep those who are vulnerable at home yet. Have a special "unemployment" fund for those who normally would be working but can't without risking their lives. Continue this until treatments improve, a vaccine arrives or we reach the end of the year. A doctors note may be required. Everyone else return to work. Retain distancing, hand washing and face coverings for those returning... more »

Base decisions on actual facts

The original models about the disease were wrong. The revised models are wrong. Now, the definitions being used skew the numbers. A cancer death on hospice who happens to test positive should be listed as a cancer death, not a COVID-19 death. Even the CDC website says most will have mild to moderate symptoms. Put politics aside and get this in perspective. The public has been improprely scared. Life always has risks.... more »

Use HR to Get Workers Back to Work

The states should work with local HR groups/chapters to get some viable ideas. HR Professionals have those tools already in their toolbox and have an understanding of the businesses and populations that various groups require. There are local, state and federal chapters of HR professionals that are always willing and ready to help. I have served on panels for these groups to help small business stay compliant, hire for... more »

Opening restaurants and entertainment

It seems restaurants and entertainment venues could be allowed to open as long as they limit the number of customers in the building at a time. Restaurants could seat people at every other or every third table and allow say 30 - 40 people at a time to be seated (depending on the size of the restaurant). The servers and kitchen help could continue to wear masks. I think we as adults should be able to make a decision for... more »

Written Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response Plan Template

I think it would be great if a template could be created by each state for businesses to utilize and tailor to their reopening plans. This template could include all the timelines, PPE recommendations, etc. based on risk classification assessments and flow charts. I'm with soliva that everyone should be required to wear PPE with reopening plans for starters. In any case, if the experts in each state can create a... more »
